uWaterloo accommodates extra students with Saturday classes

August 10, 2007

120 students at uWaterloo have been scheduled into Saturday morning classes.  A rush of acceptances six hours before the deadline has forced the university to accommodate 724 more students than expected.  A lab technician is being hired to cover the Saturday classes, which will only include biology labs (some of which are prerequisites for upper year courses).  As of yesterday, only medical or religious reasons were being accepted for transfers into weekday labs.  First-year students are given priority over second year students.  The KW Record
